lloyd back from total blindness. and "on the road", steve hartman visits a restaurant whose special city a second helping of compassion. >> i've been very lucky and i want people to have what i have. captioning sponsored by cbs this is the "cbs evening news" yzith scott pelley. >> pelley: good evening, mitt romney has 39 days to turn his 45esidential campaign into a winner but the support of a key voting group is in jeopardy. seniors tend to vote republicans but many are concerned about what a president romney might do with medicare. look at this poll of key swing states by the "washington post." in florida where nearly one out of three voters is over 65, romney trails president obama by four points. 51% to 47%. in ohio, romney is down eight points, 52% to 44%. and it gets about the same z mbers in virginia, eight points behind. in those three states, of senior voters who said medicare is extremely important 53% are going with president obama, 42% mitt romney. we asked dean reynolds to tell us more about the medicare factor. >> the first step to a stronger strcare is to repeal obamacare.
our shot there, steve, conservative radio show host. you have the visual disadvantage because you're skype. i'll let you start off first here. let me play what paul ryan, completely opposite of what chris christie said this sunday. his assessment of the debates. let's play ryan, please. >> i don't think one event is going to make or break this campaign. look, president obama's a very -- he's a very gifted speaker. this is mitt's first time on this kind of a stage. >> it's no secret, steve, you are conservative republican. you are not a fan of mitt romney. is this a make or break moment for his campaign on wednesday? who's right? chris christie or congressman ryan? >> well, if my head is twice as big as everybody on the panel does that mean i'm twice as smart in that's the question. >> you have to take that up with them. >> i think that they're both right in a way. i don't think one singular event will testimony the outcome unless either barack obama or mitt romney says there's no soviet domination of eastern europe. i do think one singular event can be a catalyst for an eventual o
msnbc mike barnicle. howard dean, and former treasury official and "morning joe" economic analyst steve rattner, stranger. >> long time, no see. >> you're always here. >> you're never here. >> we're globe trotting, what can i say? hi, willie. >> what was your initial reaction to the elizabeth warren/scott brown debate. >> scott brown fell into the trap that sometimes male politicians fall into when they debate women. he looked overbearing and angry. and you particularly can't do that when you're debating a woman candidate. i thought he was in a lot of trouble as a result of this. he's behind anyway, but now he looks mad, angry, and i think that's a -- >> okay. well, that race is fascinating. the debate was last night and we have fascinating clips of that. and also the look at preparations of the presidential debates a day away. but first, we'll start with afghanistan. nato's secretary general says there's a possibility that western forces could be withdrawn from afghanistan more quickly than previously planned. he suggested the deadly spike of insider attacks has hit the morale of forme
of interviews for "60 minutes," steve kroft and i asked about their medicare plans. >> what i won't do is take governor romney and congressman ryan's recommendations to turn medicare into a voucher system which would dump more costs on to seniors. what i'm not willing to do is to pay for another tax cut for folks like you and me by cutting help to young people to go to college or basic research that might end up providing cures for debilitating diseases. that's not a recipe for growth and we can reduce our deficit, including making some smart decisions on medicare in particular, where we're focused on lowering health care costs by reforming how health care is delivered but we don't need to be voucherizing the system to dump those costs on to seniors because, frankly, they can't afford it right now. >> pelley: there is a lot of rhetoric about medicare. what do you intend to do? >> well, i don't want any change to medicare for current seniors or for those that are nearing retirement. so the plan stays exactly same. >> pelley: make sure i understand. the idea under your plan for future seniors wo
. did you say first time ever? >> the first time ever they're 4-0. >> you mean not even under steve ba bartkowski? >> here's the thing. nobody's going to take them seriously until january. it's going to be so much pressure when the playoffs come around because they haven't delivered under matt ryan. and they could. they could run the table. >> just for the record, you say they haven't delivered in january under matt ryan. they haven't delivered in january since 1966. >> they went to the super bowl in 1998. >> dirty birds. >> and then got killed by the broncos, went out all night partying. >> in fairness. in fairness. >> no, we've had a very sad, sad playoff group, but they looked good. >> they looked very good. and character builder. they had the ball at their own 1. they drove down, got the winning field goal. >> is there a worse team in football than the dolphins? >> the browns. that's the thing. the raiders have gotten blown out a couple of times but they have a win over the steelers which no one can figure out. >> why can't the dolphins turn it around? it's been a rough, rough stre
. steve centanni is live in washington with more on this. >> reporter: one is bob corker a member of the foreign relations committee saying the benghazi incident is more bizarre every day. he wrote a letter to the director of national intelligence. it says 18 days ago the administration judged it was appropriate for our consulate to be lightly guarded. what has changed in libya such a short time that our f.b.i. agents, most elite personnel cannot safely enter the city? meantime, republicans kept up the drum beat on the administration's response and the president's foreign policy. >> the response was slow. it was confused, it was inconsistent. they first said that it was a youtube video and spontaneous mob. we now know it was a planned terrorist attack. in this was one tragic incident, that would be a tragedy in and of itself but the problem is bigger picture of the fact that the obama foreign policy is unraveling literally before our eyes on our tv screens. >> reporter: he said he would let others decide if the president was involved in a cover-up. meantime, obama advisors respond
. but enough about steve's senior staff. we are very grateful that governor romney has chosen to join us today. we have heard from the president so far today in his interview with savannah guthrie as steve mentioned while he was appearing here on tape, he was it at the podium over at the united nations. governor romney has asked to address you you before we begin the q&a. so he will to that. i will remain off to the side. i'll come up, lead the questioning. and then we will take audience questions from both himicrophon. so with our thanks for being here with us and addressing this topic that is so dear to us, ladies and gentlemen, governor mitt romney. [ applause ] >> thank you. it's an honor to be here with you and i appreciate the chance that nbc is giving us to come together to talk about a topic as important as the education of our children. i also enjoy the chance to see brian williams, an american hero. a real champion, a man of character and integrity. it's an honor to be here with him, as well. let me take you back to my own experience. i'm thinking of my children, my five sons. and th
's extremely difficult if not impossible for anyone to win statewide -- >> guest: steve, i disagree with that analysis. abraham lincoln was a third party in 1860. in 1856, you had the democratic party and the wig -- and abraham lincoln wasn't on the ballot in a number of states, particularly in the south, yet he won the election. he didn't win a majority of the popular vote, he won the majority of the electoral vote and in 1832, i would submit that there were two parties there and it was henry clay and andrew jackson and jackson won the overwhelming popular vote. back in 1824, there was certainly several different parties running and then, of course, john quincy adams won that race and that was -- you had at least three, maybe four, parties then. host: but even -- >> guest guest the electoral votes. host: but even if you take it to more recent campaigns, 1968, the caller referring to george wallace did get 46 electoral votes but didn't get close to winning the presidency, ross perot, '92 and '96, getting nearly 20 percent of the vote in '92 but not one electoral vote. guest: he got
